DVLA to allow reproduction bodies

I read in this months Classic Cars a small article.
That states that the dvla gives thumbs up to reproduction bodies.
So does that mean that if you decide to reshell a rusty uk classic car using a donner rust free body.That you can keep the uk Reg number and it would no longer be referred to as a ringer?
Anyone got a full understanding of the change ?

No, it means that anyone how buys a brand new reproduction body, ie new, never and an ID, been used, can keep the original details.

A body thats been previously registered as one car, transfered to another is still a ringer.

The article doesn't state new.
It says that the registration application should demonstrate that the replacment body is one that could have been placed on it from the outset or of a style associated to the marque

DVLA are probably thinking more along the lines of cars with separate body and chassis here. 'Heritage' 'shells are another thing altogether.

As there's no equivalent to the 'Heritage' bodyshells for the S30-series Z, the 'donor' bodyshell in the kind of situation that is relevant here would have had to come from another car and - therefore - would have had its own chassis number and its own identity.

Big can of worms.

I think thats the point. Its cars where chassis and the body are not the same.
